Carrollton, Ky. - September 3, 2020 - November 4 is the planned date for Carroll County School District students who chose the In-Person / Distance Learning instructional model to return to in-person learning. Students who chose the Virtual School instructional model will continue in that model for at least the first semester. While the goal is to return to 100% in-person learning on November 4, if conditions prevent that, the district will explore implementing a hybrid learning model.
“We recently shifted the finish date of the first grading period from October 27 to November 2,” said Superintendent Danny Osborne. “We made this shift in order to equalize the number of instructional days in each grading period. As a result of this shift, the first instructional day of the second grading period will be November 4, which is when we plan to return to in-person instruction.”
For the 2020-2021 school year, Carroll County School District students have the option to enroll under two models:
— In-Person / Distance Learning: Students attend classes in-person when allowed by the school district. When in-person classes are not allowed, students participate in Distance Learning primarily through Google Classroom. Students are currently participating in Distance Learning.
— Virtual School: The Virtual School option is for students who do not plan to attend in-person classes at any point for at least the first semester. Students will learn via the Edgenuity online platform.
Students who chose the Virtual School model will continue learning online through the first semester. To switch from Virtual School to In-Person / Distance Learning, families must notify their child’s school by Dec. 18.
The first semester ends January 20, and the third grading period begins January 21, which is the first date Virtual School students may return to in-person learning if they switch instructional models.
